Both venues – Ruskeasuon palloiluhalli and Talihalli – are located under 7 km from Helsinki city centre. They are easy to access by public transport. The history of Ruskeasuon palloiluhalli is quite interesting: it was built as a horseback riding hall in 1940 and was used in Olympics in 1952. Later it was renovated for a multipurpose hall, including still riding, badminton and martial arts.

Talihalli was opened in autumn 2011 and it is used as a badminton and squash hall. There is 12 badminton and 6 squash courts. The badminton courts are made of high quality flex parquet, which ensures a pleasant playing experience and ventilation guarantees fresh and circulating air.
